According to MTV, who are posting updates about backstage activity at Live 8, Linkin Park and Kanye West were talking during their soundcheck last night. Speculation leads to a possible collaboration today, but please treat this as a complete rumour without a shred of confirmation. "In Philadelphia, the backstage scene actually started the night before the show. During soundchecks, Kanye West and Linkin Park seemed to be doing a bit more than talking about mutual admiration. Could they be possibly plotting something onstage or in the studio? Time will tell ..." -- MTV.com Links between Kanye, Linkin Park, and Jay-Z are quite common. Kanye is quite close with Jay-Z from being together under the Roc-A-Fella label, and his protegé John Legend will be featured on the debut album from Mike Shinoda's side project Fort Minor. Stay tuned, their performance happens in about 40-50 minutes due to delays at the concert. Source: MTV.com Thanks to Paul!
